With a record number of contracts being awarded within the Aerospace & Defense industry, Engineering, Science and Technology companies are always looking for just the right talent to make big things happen. As a corporation always at the cusp of innovation, Northrop Grumman appeals to industry “rock stars” not only because of the opportunity to work on history changing projects, but also because of the excellent pay, benefits and job flexibility they offer as an employer.
So, how can you make your resume stand out and take center stage with a company like Northrop Grumman? Here are 6 ways to make it happen:
1. SECURITY CLEARANCE
Over the last several years, there’s been a rise in demand for professionals with security clearance – but there are fewer cleared people in the industry than ever before. So, if you have a clearance, this could be the ideal time to leverage that credential, explore new opportunities, and make the next move in your career path.
2. PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS
The Aerospace & Defense industry has always dealt with massive amounts of data. Today, more than ever before, these corporations need the capabilities to put it to work for them. If you are an experienced professional with predictive analytics experience that can harness data to add real value to the corporation – then that makes you invaluable.
3. PROJECT MANAGEMENT & LOGISTICS
With all of the projects that are going on simultaneously within a global corporation, there is always a need for those professionals who have large-scale project management experience. Being able to deliver on-time and on-budget is key to an organization’s success – and people who can stay on top of that are always in demand.
4. MACHINE LEARNING & AI
Industry insiders say machine learning and artificial intelligence will affect the Aerospace & Defense industry more than any emerging technology. Professionals with these skill sets in their wheelhouse will remain in hot demand.
As many employers in the industry move to cloud-first strategies, the evolution of the platform is constant. That means hiring managers in the Aerospace & Defense industry are actively seeking tech pros with cloud skills such as application design, DevOps and security architecture.
Always a top priority within any government contractor, professionals with cybersecurity expertise are finding more opportunities than ever before. If you have certifications like CISSD or CISM, you’ll see even more doors open as time goes on.
